EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - The Eau Claire Cavaliers amateur baseball team canceled what would have been its 50th season.

After a strong showing in 2019, finishing tied for the third best record in the Chippewa River Baseball League and becoming the 2019 Wisconsin Baseball Association State Champions, the Cavaliers will not have the chance to duplicate that success.

Reports suggest that there will be a season for some teams in the Chippewa River Baseball League but the Cavaliers will not be apart of that group.

“Recent spike in the COVID-19 in the area, the Eau Claire Cavaliers organization decided with our fans, our families, our players and everyone around, that we didn’t want to be the reason that COVID got brought into the community, so we didn’t feel comfortable going out into other areas, for example, down to Sparta, over to the cities, to Marshfield, anything like that,” said Cavaliers Team President Nicole Brannigan.
